  5. Ripple price failed to hold the key $0.3250 support level and recently declined against the US dollar. The price even broke the $0.3200 support level to move into a short term bearish zone. Yesterday’s highlighted major bullish trend line was breached with support at $0.3260 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken). The price could extend the current decline and it might test the $0.3100 or $0.3000 support area. Ripple price is currently trading below an important support against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP price might soon revisit the $0.3000 support area before starting a fresh rise. Ripple Price Analysis Recently, we saw a decent rise in ripple price above the $0.3250 and $0.3320 resistances against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even spiked above the $0.3400 level and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. A swing high was formed near $0.3418 and the price started a downside correction. It broke the $0.3320 support level to start the current bearish wave. Moreover, the price failed to hold the key $0.3250 support level. As a result, there was a bearish break below $0.3250 and $0.3240. The price traded below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upside move from the $0.3100 swing low to $0.3418 high. Additionally, yesterday’s highlighted major bullish trend line was breached with support at $0.3260 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. It opened the doors for more losses below the $0.3200 support. At the outset, the price is trading near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upside move from the $0.3100 swing low to $0.3418 high. Therefore, there is a risk of more losses below the $0.3150 support level. The next support is near the $0.3100 level, below which the price could decline towards the main $0.3000 support area. On the upside, the recent supports near $0.3250 might act as a resistance. There is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $0.3225 on the same chart. More importantly, the 100 hourly SMA is positioned near the $0.3255 level. Therefore, a successful break above $0.3260 and the 100 hourly SMA is needed for a fresh increase. Looking at the chart, ripple price is showing bearish signs below the $0.3250 support. Overall, as long as the price is trading below $0.3250 and $0.3260, there are chances of a downside extension below $0.3100 in the near term. Technical Indicators Hourly MACD – The MACD for XRP/USD is slowly losing momentum in the bullish zone. Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for XRP/USD is now well below the 50 level. Major Support Levels – $0.3150, $0.3100 and $0.3030. Major Resistance Levels – $0.3225, $0.3250 and $0.3260.

  7. The Palestinian Authority believes issuing a sovereign cryptocurrency token will reduce Palestine’s reliance on the Israeli shekel. Palestinian Authority: First Money, then Power Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh recently announced that his government will use cryptocurrency to bypass sanctions levied by Israel. Shtayyeh issued the statement while speaking before the Palestine Center for Computer Emergency Response in Ramallah on July 9. While speaking on Palestine TV, Shtayyeh said: The Palestinian economy has about 25 billion shekels [$7 billion] circulating in the local economy, but we’re not forced to remain dependent on the shekel. Shtayyeh promised to consider every option and do whatever it takes to find a path to economic freedom that Israel cannot block. The 1994 Paris Protocol equips the Palestinian Monetary Authority (PMA) with the powers of a central bank, but the government has been unable to issue banknotes. The agreement was signed by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and Israel in 1994 but it states that the shekel will be used “as means of payment for all purposes including official transactions.” As a result, the Israeli shekel is one of the primary currencies in circulation, along with the Jordanian dinar, and the US dollar. Not All Good Ideas Work In 2017, the PMA pitched the idea of launching a sovereign digital currency and the body hopes to have the digital asset ready within the next five years. In theory, using a sovereign digital asset to bypass sanctions sounds good but not everyone is on board with the idea. Najah University economics and social science professor Bakr Shtayyeh doubts that cryptocurrency will be economically feasible or practical for most Palestinians. Shtayyeh also questioned whether a Palestinian cryptocurrency will effectively separate Palestine from relying on Israel. Shtayyeh told Al-Monitor: If Palestine has its own currency will it be able to prevent Israel from withholding tax clearance funds or controlling crossings and the movement of exports and imports? Will Palestine be able to conclude direct commercial deals with neighboring countries without the imported or exported goods passing through Israeli commercial ports. Shtayyeh believes that money is not the problem, rather, the Palestinian economy’s “complex economic and political reliance on Israel” is the true issue. According to Shtayyeh, “there are 170,000 Palestinians working in Israel who earn their salaries in the Israeli shekel [and] 80% of the trade exchanges with Israel are in shekels.” Furthermore, what foreign parties or countries would actually take the risk of violating international sanctions to transact with Palestine using its sovereign currency? Shtayyeh explained that in all reality, Israel will shun Palestine’s cryptocurrency and the countries reliance on the shekel will “remain unchanged”. Cryptocurrency to Alter the Post World War II International Order? Security is another issue to consider, and Shtayyeh and Mazen al-Agha, an economics professor at the Palestinian Planning Center cautioned that Israel’s cybersecurity, cyberattack capability, and software development infrastructure is extremely advanced compared to Palestine. Even if Palestine’s digital currency is developed to completion, there’s always the possibility that it could be compromised by outside cyberattacks. Shtayyeh and al-Agha suggest that a more realistic option would involve Palestine reducing trade exchanges with Israel and building special trade relations with neighboring countries. Palestine is not the first country to consider cryptocurrency as a method for overcoming oppressive governments or international sanctions. Currently, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, and the citizens of Zimbabwe are considering cryptocurrency as a path to economic freedom. All of the concerns aired by Shtayyeh and al-Agha are valid critiques that must be considered and while they may come off as skeptics, both agree that “in theory, it’s possible to issue this currency, but in practice, there are a lot of difficulties. Before issuing it, the PA needs to create a favorable economic environment.” Do you sovereign digital assets are a path to freedom for countries like Palestine, Venezuela, Iran, and Cuba?

  8. ETH price failed to continue higher above the $230 and $240 resistance levels against the US Dollar. The price started a fresh decrease and broke the key $220 and $218 support levels. Yesterday’s highlighted breakout pattern was breached with support near $222 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken). The pair is now trading below the $220 support and it might decline further towards the $207 support. Ethereum price is struggling to gain bullish momentum versus the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH price remains at a risk of more loses unless it settles above $220 and $224. Ethereum Price Analysis After trading towards the $240 level, Ethereum price started a downside correction against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded below the $230 and $225 support levels. Recently, it consolidated above the $220 support level and near the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price made an attempt to climb back above $230, but the bulls failed to gain momentum. As a result, there was a downside break below the $220 support level. The price even settled below $220 and the 100 hourly SMA. Moreover, it declined towards the $210 level and a swing low was formed at $211. At the outset, the price is correcting higher towards the $218 and $220 resistances. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $228 high to $211 low. However, the upward move might face a strong resistance near the $220 level. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $228 high to $211 low is also near the $220 level to act as a resistance. The main resistance is near the $224 level and the 100 hourly SMA. Therefore, a successful close above $224 is needed for a fresh increase. On the other hand, if the price fails to break the $218 or $220 resistance, it could continue to decline. An initial support is near the $212 level, below which there is a risk of more losses below $210. The next important support on the downside is near the $207 level. Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is trading below a major support near $220. Therefore, there is a risk of more losses below $215 and $211 in the coming sessions. To recover, the price must surpass the $220 and $224 resistance levels in the near term. ETH Technical Indicators Hourly MACD – The MACD for ETH/USD is struggling to gain pace in the bullish zone, with negative signs. Hourly RSI – The RSI for ETH/USD is currently moving higher towards the 50 level, with a minor bullish angle.

Iran's Economic Commission endorses crypto mining 'system' Legislative head of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI), Abdolnaser Hemmati said that "a system to mine advanced coins was endorsed by the administration's monetary bonus and will later be put to discourse at a Cabinet meeting."

  17. San Francisco-based crypto exchange Coinbase, is among the clear leaders in the crypto industry, helping to shape and define the future of the space and what products are offered to the market’s participants. It is also the most commonly used fiat-to-crypto gateway in the United States – a market that consists of the largest portion of investors across the globe. According to new data shared by renowned Bitcoin entrepreneur and startup investor Alistair Milne, Coinbase has amassed a massive user base of 30 million users, with as much as 5 million new users added over the last ten months as Bitcoin found its bottom and began to rise once again. After such a major milestone, where does the world’s most well-known crypto exchange go from here? Coinbase Reaches Staggering 30 Million Users, Sees Over 15% Increase In 10 Months Around the time Bitcoin hit the mainstream public and reached its all-time high of $20,000 at the tail end of December 2017, Coinbase topped Apple’s App Store as the most popular app in the finance category, showing the world that crypto was a force to be respected. Since then, Bitcoin fell into a bear market and the entire asset class has since struggled, but has recently showed a glimmer of hope once again with trading volume surging and interest once again returning to the industry. Coinbase has passed 30million users this month (adding 5million users in the last ~10 months)#bitcoin pic.twitter.com/3SNO7HwBxg — Alistair Milne (@alistairmilne) July 22, 2019 Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong pushed his team to stay strong during the 2018 bear market and use the downtrend to build a solid foundation for when the bull market resumed. While a full blown bull market may not be here yet, over the last ten months during that time, Coinbase was able to add an additional 5 million users, or an additional 16.6% to its already massive userbase. What’s Next for the Leading US-Based Crypto Exchange? In a recent live YouTube AMA, a segment where someone invites an audience to “ask me anything,” popularized by a Reddit subreddit of the same title, Armstrong revealed that he wants to take his firm beyond just crypto trading, but to pursue pushing widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies by offering an extensive list of services beyond trading. But Coinbase and the rest of the crypto market may be headed into uncharted territory soon once regulation hits the industry. Crypto has long been said to be a “wild west” type environment rife with scams, crime, and shady players. The CFTC and other chief financial regulators will soon be targeting businesses that don’t comply with law, starting with BitMEX. Related Reading | US Congressman: You Can’t Kill Bitcoin, Libra And Others Trying to Mimic While Coinbase does comply, and isn’t at the same risk BitMEX may be, even a recent Squawk Box segment had CNBC technology correspondent Josh Lipton posited a question on what happens to Bitcoin and crypto if “Coinbase cannot accept money from a US citizen,” in reference to the recent burst of regulatory pressure from President Donald Trump, the Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin and a wide variety of politicians and pundits that are opposed to the asset class. While such a move is unlikely, and Bitcoin cannot be killed, it would still hurt the industry and significantly damage Coinbase as a business.

  22. Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto markets have been incurring increased volatility over the past several days, which first began when BTC sharply moved towards $11,000 before swiftly being rejected and plummeting lower. Now, it appears that Bitcoin is likely to drop back towards the $9,000 region, and analysts are noting that the CME Futures gap that exists around $8,500 could be a logical level for the cryptocurrency to drop to before it finds any meaningful support. Bitcoin Plummets Towards $10,200 as Selling Pressure Ramps Up At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down nearly 2% at its current price of $10,280, which is down significantly from its daily highs of nearly $10,700 that were set yesterday. Over a one-week period, it becomes abundantly clear as to just how volatile Bitcoin has been as of late, as it dropped to lows of $9,100 last week before surging past $11,000, which was subsequently followed by a sharp selloff that has led the crypto towards its current prices. Importantly, the parabolic formation that BTC has formed ever since it began climbing from $3,200 appears to have been broken, which likely means that it will either face a bout of consolidation or move lower in the near future. Jonny Moe, a popular cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, elucidated that the parabola has been broken in a recent tweet, while referencing the below chart. $BTC pic.twitter.com/SezbB8ggK4 — Jonny Moe (@JonnyMoeTrades) July 22, 2019 Will BTC Drop Until it Fills CME Futures Gap? One important price level that traders and analysts should closely watch is $8,515, as this is the price level at which Bitcoin formed a CME Futures gap, which are typically filled shortly after they are formed. Chonis Trading, another popular cryptocurrency analyst, spoke about this level in a recent tweet, noting that BTC did not form any futures gaps this week, but still has the one at $8,515 to fill. “$BTC – (cme futures) new weekly candle opens within the range of the previous weeks candle so NO new gap. Only open gap on the #bitcoin “weekly” chart is at $8500 area,” he explained in a recent tweet. $BTC – (cme futures) new weekly candle opens within the range of the previous weeks candle so NO new gap. Only open gap on the #bitcoin “weekly” chart is at $8500 area… pic.twitter.com/2kxzT8tFFl — Chonis Trading- (@BigChonis) July 21, 2019 Although it is unclear whether or not the key psychological price level of $10,000 will hold as a strong support region, any break below this level will likely open the gates for significantly further losses which may extend all the way down to the aforementioned CME Futures gap.
